Give Your Child the World Booklist

We are always seeking to improve our selection of books about other cultures, so we were VERY excited to hear about this booklist about children around the world when it was published in 2016. Give Your Child the World introduces your children, ages 4-12, to children from Africa, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia & Oceania, and North America, as well as introducing them to polar exploration. We were so excited to find this book, in fact, that we added every single title it included to our database. This list has provided a springboard for us to bring in additional titles to offer here at Exodus, but it's also a great tool for you: you can use the tools below to filter this list by region and recommended age level to find fantastic suggestions for library trips.

But don't think this list lets you off the hook for buying the book! Author Jamie Martin offers far more in the book than just a list!

Happy hunting!
